EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Nuclear (NGN)

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

APPLICATIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 2016 ARE NOW OPEN

Next Generation Nuclear is a partnership between the Universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield. Its mission is to develop the next generation of research leaders to support the UK’s present and future strategic nuclear programmes- cleaning up the nuclear legacy, building new nuclear power stations, and defence and security. It will work with all the UK’s major industrial and regulatory stakeholders, including Amec, Areva, AWE, EDF, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the National Nuclear Laboratory, Rolls-Royce, and Sellafield Ltd, and with leading overseas institutions.

Going forward there will be between 14 and 18 fully funded PhD studentships across all universities involved

Next Generation Nuclear took its first intake of students in September 2014. Going forward there will be between 14 and 18 fully funded PhD studentships across all universities involved in the Next Generation Nuclear partnership (Lancaster/Leeds/Liverpool/Manchester/Sheffield) and many of these will involve close collaboration with industry, including secondments into industrial nuclear research centres.

A list of the specific Next Generation Nuclear PhD projects can be found here https://www.nextgennuclear.manchester.ac.uk/our-research/

We welcome applications from graduates who have, or expect to obtain, a good degree (first class or upper second). To be eligible for a studentship, you must either be a U.K. citizen or a European Union national who has been resident in the U.K. for at least 3 years prior to starting the course. We welcome applications from good students of all nationalities, but we are only able to offer financial support to students that fulfil the above criteria.

The NGN Centre welcomes applications from international students however; this particular programme is funded by the Research Council which means we have limited funding opportunities for overseas students.
